Yahoo’s Agile Love Story – Ed Kraay and Stas Zvinyatskovsky at Agile 2015

Yahoo’s Stas Zvinyatskovsky and Ed Kraay dive into how the company came back from the brink and have managed to implement Continuous Delivery at the Internet giant. Four years ago, the duo focused on bringing Scrum and Continuous Integration practices to bear and spreading it throughout the entire business unit. Stas explains, “We decided to go for full Continuous Delivery, didn’t completely get there, but got very close and so [we got] extremely positive results: we were moving much faster, delivering much faster, quality was so much higher. We were able to take that example from the Ads group and present it to the company and say, ‘If we implement Continuous Delivery, we will achieve the same thing company-wide.’”
